The first couple of days back to school reminded me of how I felt when I had my kids. I thought I was prepared but you never are. So this weekend, I’m working on some meal prepping and planning so that I can save time and focus on work and the girls’ school time. BREAKFAST… Continue reading →

With Back To School in full swing, I wanted to share a healthy breakfast shake recipe with you. This doesn't taste "healthy", and if the kids don't watch you make it, they won't even know that there's spinach in it!

Back to school season is the busiest time of year for my family. Once we pick the kids up from school it's go, go, go. With homework, projects, and after school activities to tend to the last thing I want to do is spend an hour or more in the kitchen cooking dinner, so today I'm teaming up with Smithfield to bring you a delicious Fall dish, cooked in the slow cooker, and it only takes 5 minutes of prep time! It's Real Flavor, Real Fast! This Slow Cooker Molasses, Garlic, & Herb Pork Loin is quick and easy and oh so tender and flavorful. The garlic and herbs infuse the pork with flavor while the molasses mixture gives it a deep, sweet, sticky crust.
With cooler weather here and Fall on the horizon, I couldn't wait to make something warm and comforting with some of my favorite Fall flavors. This marinated garlic & herb pork loin is butterflied and rolled with herbed stuffing and glazed with a sweet and tart cranberry sauce. Sound complicated? It took me less than 30 minutes to prepare and it cooked in the slow cooker while I did other things. :) Back to school is back to busy time for me, so you know this recipe is going to be easy to make and taste amazing!

So it’s back to school time again and that means it’s time for some lunch! Whether back-to-school time represents making lunches for yourself or your kids, it’s never a bad thing to get some great ideas. Maybe you’re needing something to take to work or you do meal preps. I’m not really in any of these categories and I still love fun lunches. So while I’m not in school anymore (thank goodness) my youngest sister is going back to school soon. It’s had me thinking about I always seem to miss this opportunity every year to share these kinds of ideas. And that’s what today’s post is. It’s definitely more about the inspiration than a rigid recipe but I have included the links to some of the recipes I’ve used here. Sushi Box: for the sushi I’ve used this recipe and added a little soy sauce. On the side are some carrots, zucchini slices, strawberries, green grapes, and sliced mango. For a small treat I added a peanut butter cup from this recipe. Berries + Granola: for this one I’ve used some homemade muesli (but you can use any cereal or granola you’d like) and the chia pudding from this recipe. Along with that I added some blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and sunshine raspberries. Then I added a little bit of homemade trailmix made from buckinis, cacao nibs, and pepitas. AB+Banana+Strawberry Sandwich: So the sandwich is simply some thinly sliced strawberries and bananas spread with a little bit of almond butter. You can use any nut or seed butter you prefer. On the side I added some kiwis, apples, snap peas, and red bell peppers with some guacamole to dip in. I added some energy bites from this recipe. Now I know kids can be pretty particular so if you’re making these for a young one, definitely feel free to make swaps. I hope you’re getting as excited as I am about the coming season and I hope you got something from these ideas. 🙂
So the summer is almost over, and it is time to start planning gluten-free breakfasts on the go, healthy snacks, lunches and quick dinners. It is all about meal planning to make your time in the kitchen less stressful and leaving you time for more important things like after school activities and time with your […]
